Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted, ubuntu pxe boot

.

I don't understand why. I have no issues with 14.0. One strange thing is ubuntu 14 has a folder call "casper" from where i copied "initrd" and "vmlinuz" but here for 12.04 there is not "casper" folder. so i found "initrd" and "vmlinuz" in "install" folder.

i tried few versions which have no casper folders , they are all failed. so please help me how to install 12.04 via pxe boot.

I'm stuck very badly .. I appreciate you quick response and help.
Thank you very much in advance.

Might consider using the iso directly. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallServer
